I like Cabelas brand the best. My buddy has this one and I've used it several times.

I own a Sea Anchor, I believe, and I don't like it. It constantly tangles up and just yesterday the lead weight fell out of it. It's too flimsy and expensive for what I got..

Most socks work the same and you can spend as little as $30 or as much as $80 on a sock. Select a sock that is large enough (if not larger ) for your boat and make sure the sock incorporates a float and a weight. I have used many socks in the last 6 years and the wave tamer is the brand I am using now. They are a little more expensive but worth it!

I've owned several brands and I prefer the Cabela's brand the best, although I don't use the aluminum hoop that comes with it, it's too cumbersome. I also bought one that is rated for a 18-21' boat, I have a 16' boat, I find it works better. One other thing I've done is tie a couple of duck decoy weights onto the end of the cone, it sinks into the water and opens quicker that way.

I use a Magnum Drift Control Sea anchor.

But I havent used it yet to drift, I use it trolling. I have a 1760 Tuffy with a 75 Merc tiller and the drift sock was much cheaper then a kicker.
With the 75hp I can troll down to about 1.2mph with the drift sock I can say still if i want to.
Works great 3-waying and handlining just clip it to the front ring on the boat and stays in the center of the boat not even close to tangleing in the motor.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
